I want to start using the side-lying position at nights. I've always sat up in bed with a pillow before now, but I'm back at work and need more sleep! But I'm finding it really awkward to get into and out of the position without help.
DS sleeps in a co-sleeper attached to my side of the bed, his mattress is an inch or so lower than mine, so it takes a little leverage to get him onto my bed. I pretty much have to sit up to get him. Anyone have tricks they use to not have to wake up so much to get him lying next to me? I don't want to bed-share.
The other big issue is he usually takes both sides -- how do you switch sides?
Would love if I could get this going with some level of grace - so I don't have to wake up too much and the baby doesn't start crying from all the awkward handling.
